Paisley's All-time Liverpool XI

In my lifetime of football experience with Liverpool, I have played with, treated, coached and managed a host of great players and it has always been a temptation for me - and others - to choose my best all-time team. I now succumb to the temptation and commit this 4-2-4 line-up to print:

        

       Ray Clemence                       Phil Neal                        Mark Lawrenson

           

        Ron Yeats                       Emlyn Hughes                      Kenny Dalglish

         

    Graeme Souness                   Ian Callaghan                   Kevin Keegan

       

          Roger Hunt                       Billy Liddell                      Ian St John (sub)

Sir Bob quote

"There are five things generally accepted to be necessary to make a footballer: skill, strength, stamina, speed and flexibility. You have to bear these factors in mind when you are putting together your training programme. The whole scene is a stamina test, a marathon race. Strength has to be developed from the start. You build that up, giving the player a higher resistance to things. Skill comes next, developed with a constant repetition of pattern. Speed comes after you've run them in. Then you start to get them stretching out. Flexibility is important, and we probably suffer in this country because of our climate. It's a well-known fact that players performing in warmer climates have a wider range of movements."
